This super cute crochet can cozy pattern is styled after a cactus. It is ribbed for texture and has adorable details like spines and a flower.

This crochet can cozy is a quick make and is fantastic to use as a stocking stuffer or for craft fairs. Make two to share with your best friend, create several with different colors of flowers for your siblings or parents, leave the flower out for a more classic and simple cactus can cozy… your choice!

Easy/Advanced Beginner - This crochet can cozy is an advanced beginner pattern. You should know the basic crochet stitches such as slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet, etc. You should also know how to work in closed rounds. Slightly more advanced techniques include working in the back loop only and working front post half double crochet stitches. Both of these are detailed in a photo tutorial.
